Darragh Maher from Joey’s Dublin took the under 12 Stars Academy Ireland title in Sharkx Newbridge recently. In the semi final against Liam Colleran from Kildare, Darragh had a good 2 nil win to put him in the final. Martin Eastwood also from Dublin won his match 2 nil over Cody Graham from Cavan to meet Darragh in the final.
The final was an all Dublin affair, and Darragh put the pressure on from the onset with some great potting, however Martin put up a good show but was out played by Darragh who won the 2 frames needed for the title.
Congratulations to Darragh on his first Stars title and to Martin on a great performance in his first ever competition.
Thanks to all the parents and mentors who supported these young players on the day and thanks to Bernie and staff of Sharkx for providing excellent facilities on the day.
We look forward to seeing these young guns again on 20th February in Joey’s for the under 14’s & 15’s
